Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and is governed by the planet Venus, which rules over the Second House, dealing with fertility, stability, and resources. The symbol for Taurus is a bull, representing strength and determination.

People who are born under the Taurus sign like to be in control of events and have a very strong sense of what is real. They can be quite conservative and work hard until they reach their goal. Pragmatic and tough, they are paragons of perseverance.

Taurus is a zodiac sign known for its love of stability and consistency. Sometimes stubborn or angry, they lack flexibility. They are also epicureans by nature who know how to take advantage of life’s pleasures.

Their planet, Venus, is linked with the Earth element. It stands for the charm and physical beauty. As a feminine planet, Venus embodies love, gentleness, and well-being. Venusians are attracted to art in all its forms.
